    Lightbulb SDCC 2019: The Eternals announced

    https://www.marvel.com/articles/movi...nals-announced





    Richard Madden as Ikaris
    Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo
    Lauren Ridloff as Makkari
    Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos
    Salma Hayek as Ajak
    Lia McHugh as Sprite
    Don Lee as Gilgamesh
    Angelina Jolie as Thena

    So, no Sersi casting yet? And Ajak's a she this time.

    Wasn't Sersi supposed to be the lead character ?

    I don't know if me loving this or hating it will make me more pissed off.

    Let's just say that a lot of rumours about this movie turned out to be inaccurate or false.

    Well that's what we were led to believe. But my initial reaction to Jolie as Thena is that as soon as we see her in costume expect Maleficent/Thena memes the way Cate Blanchett has Galadriel/Hela memes.

    Why did they flip the gender of multiple characters!? And why is an Asian person playing a character from a middle eastern legend this makes even less sense than the original rumor?

    You can say that again! I totally thought Angelina was to play Sersi.

    But the surprise is Salma, who, in full disclosure, is my wife and life's passion on an alternate Earth. Happy to see her on the big screen again. Curious to see how they explain her as Ajak, which is not only a male in the comics, but one of the more senior Eternals.

    Hayek apparently said that Ajak is the leader of the Eternals.

    I don't get the Sersi/Thena twist for Jolie. Is Sersi still the lead but not cast yet? If she isn't in the movie, then it's a romance between whom exactly?

    Ikaris and Thena I guess?

    Maybe she is, and that's why it's taking longer to announce her casting, because they're still looking for the right actress? I find it hard to believe Sersi won't be a part of this. She was probably the most relatable Eternal and the one who had the biggest history outside of the group. It makes zero sense to erase her, of all characters.

    On another note, I am not surprised at all with the several changes made to the characters. With a group as obscure as the Eternals, I had no doubt they would feel more confident to make big changes like that.

    This cast is crazy. I love how its so desireable for A-List actors to do superhero movies now
    The J-man

    I post via my phone a lot, therefore I make the occasional grammatical error. Not an excuse just forewarning you. Feel free to call me out I won't mind.

    I think people just assumed that, because many speculated Sersi would be played by Jolie.

    Eternals Gilgamesh isn't the one from the myths.
